    youve all heard of the ebay il buy ur car for my friend who isnt in the country for £3000 more than its worth etc...

    now theyve started doing it on job search sites.......

    a friend just sent me this asking for advice.....

    We are looking for someone to get the children ready in the morning, prepare and clear up the family's breakfast, make the beds, and take the children to school, which is about a 1.5km walk away. The au pair would then need to pick them up at 3.20 and look after them until we get home. We will ask the au pair to babysit 1-2 evenings a week. We have a really great cleaner, so there wouldn't be any heavy housework. There is a bit of light cleaning and laundry which would take about 90 minutes a day in total.There would be plenty of time free in the day to go to language school, and there are a lot of good ones in the area.
    How does the aupair live:The au pair would have her own room, which is huge, and has a double bed, with sitting area and TV/DVD/Video/Hifi. There is wireless broadband internet in the house.Working hours:07.30 to 09.00 and 1520 to 1930Plus about 60-90 minutes of housework a day to fit in with the au pair's schedule.
    25-30 hours a week
    Benefit:
    I will like you to know that i will be paying you 1400 POUND for every four weeks and a pocket money of 300POUND per week for the buying of some things for your self and i will also be responsible for some of the funds for your traveling documents.


    she replied by email thinking it was real and got this back.......

    Not neccesarily a job scam. My sister went to Italy about 10yrs ago as an au pair for a year. Family was a world renowned neuro-surgeon dad & mum was a GP, the point of having an au pair was for them to learn better english as well as for the little girl. Its not a given that because this blokes a doctor he should know fluent english! Simple rule of thumb is never to send money abroad eg for visa's, but if they're being introduced through a reputable au pair agengy then its likely to be legitimate. If its just a general advert then could be a little dodgy as your suspecting!
